IDA NIELSEN & BAND


 

 

(Hong Kong / Tuesday, 20th June 2017) Two nights in a row at PLAY over the last weekend, we were very honoured to have Ida Nielsen & Band giving very special live prerformances. Noteable guests including Peter Kjaer, Ariel Ho-Kjaer, Christian Rhomberg, Joseph Fung, Terry Chan and Jonathan Young together with all the music lovers in the house have all enjoyed the great evenings. Choosing Hong Kong as her first and only stop in Asia, Ida has certainly brought us the most astounding show ever.

Ida Nielsen has toured the world with the late Prince as a bassist and vocalist.
“I think I learned that anything is possible, if you put your mind to it. …There’s no limit. If you push, then the limit is pushed, too…I feel like you can improve in so many ways in your whole life, but I guess what I mean is to not stop improving. To be kind of a life student.” said Ida Nielsen in an interview with The Current.

As a member of the 3RDEYEGIRL and The New Power Generation, backing bands for Prince, Ida Nielsen describes playing with Prince as “a huge gift and as the most magical musical journey ever, and an on-going learning experience beyond all imagination.” She has constantly been seeking diversity in music. Her new solo produced and programmed album “Turnitup” released in 2016 revealed the spirit of her by integrating different genres of music including hiphop and reggae into her unyielding funk style.
